George Payne 1976

George Payne plays a handsome construction worker named Charlie Dobbs in 1976's Kiss Today Goodbye who finds sexual opportunities everywhere that he goes, but in the process he cheats on his boyfriend.  Dobbs (Payne) meets a straight-identified businessman (Seager) and they form a bromance, thanks to how desperately unhappy each of them are with their respective mates back home. The storyline involves male sexual desires and a growing emotional dependence that each dude builds for the other's acceptance and understanding.  This was an era when porn movies were really trying to be films with connected plots, drama, dialog, and this one even included some special effects camera work!  Actually, reviews were mixed about this flick, but who cannot grin at a gay sex movie where one of the men in the credits is named Ben Dover?
The scene of Payne and Seager lying on the floor next to a fireplace, as Seager sucks on Payne's cock, still remains sexy decades afterwards.  Bearded Payne is master of his cock as he guides its head into Seager's eager mouth. Then a horny Seager kneels with his back facing George, offering Payne to mount him. Payne positions himself behind his partner as his cock (hands-free) instinctively enters (this is pre-condom era sex) Seager's ass.  A methodical fucking session begins, much to the painful delight of Seager, until George releases himself.  It's worthy to note that this was before home videos and the action happening in the film was played on a large theatre screen for an audience sharing the erotic experience together.  The film had its world premiere in New York City on Broadway at a time when the area around 49th street was filled with adult shops and theatres.  Writer H.M. Mostersen once recalled going to the district after working hours and sitting next to Wall Street traders in suits, city utility workers in overalls, middle aged married men and street hustlers. 

This film starred George Payne, Lew Seager, David Savage, Michael Gaunt, Mark Hamilton , Kurt Mann, Firth Demule, Ben Dover, and R. Cansino.

Original Daddy Candy: Mr. Braun

The photo above is not about the telephone cord.  It's not even about his cock.  It's all about that pelt of fur.
Sexy Mike would fit into today's modern male fashions as easily as he did in the 1970's with his beard and haircut.  To say that Mike's hairy is an understatement.  Instead of a treasure trail this man has an entire forest leading from his chest to his dick.

1984's Bordello Studs revisits 1884

Kurt Williams with hairy Michael Braun
This all-color magazine featured gents who performed in the 1984 film Gold Rush Boys.  The movie remains distinctive for several reasons, not the least of which were the lush ornate Victorian era sets used, framed within a vintage gingerbread-style mansion.  The production crew even used period costumes for the performers.  These images, of a thickly-bearded blonde man being serviced by another gent in a fancy Victorian parlour room, remain popular on the Internet today, even among fans who were not yet born when the movie and magazine originally came out.  This Steve Scott film stands the test of time, as does its stars.
This movie was distributed back in 1984, a time when actual 'film makers' were still creating a lot of erotic smut in the business, bringing creative story lines and scripts to their craft.  While the fantasy plot may be typical smut in both nature and delivery, Gold Rush Boys is a reminder of how high production values used to be.  Men like Steve Scott were true cinematographers who strived to deliver a quality product.

Casting reflects another notable feature that is oftentimes all-too missing today, as the film uses men who are not all youthful gym twinks.  These masculine (and naturally hairy) guys offer a visual treat.  The sex action is all pre-condom and shot with some wonderful camerawork.  And there are nine full sex scenes filled with lots of action.  Directed by Steve Scott, it starred Kurt Williams, Mike Braun, Ben Barker, Nick Jarrett, Joe Reeves, Rick Faulkner, Lee Adams, Jay Cole, Brian Nichols, Paul Monroe,  and Jim King. 

As the film notes: "In 1849 San Francisco all that glitters isn't gold, but what a rush! In the good old days when California's gold miners had pouches heavy with nuggets and bulges that were even heavier still, Kincaid's was the most popular place to a world without women and filled with sex-starved men. Here, '49ers could get anything they wanted in a house of boys who aimed to please, and did just that. When innocent Kurt Williams shows up looking for work and passes Kincaid's (Braun's) test, he's hired on the spot and joins the house's stable of fresh eager to please boys-for-hire."

Stay Tuned For Part Two!

Tropical Heatwave!

Luciano Perreira
What with all the talk about Rio and jocks, this is probably a good time to take a look at those sexy men.  Back in 1988, the wildly successful video Tropical Heatwave.   Kristen Bjorn kicked off his career in male erotic films with this movie which was a scintillating jerk-off extravaganza.  A good way to describe this video's content might be to imagine Playgirl-type beefy models---only these dudes are fully aroused and sharing themselves with the audience (this is masturbation soft-core stuff)---to the point of climax.  Bjorn knew that many gay guys were attracted to handsome men without giving a whole lot of thought about the model's sexuality in real life.  He effectively marketed the fact that many of this solo-performers were straight men doing it just for the cash and were not turned on by other dudes.  No problem for the models or the audience!  Before there was the 'Prague straight model' craze, there was Bjorn and his cash-strapped men from Brazil, Eastern Europe, and Australia.   The lush settings used to showcase his discoveries included dreamlike villas, sand dunes, and glistening waterfalls against dense jungle foliage.  The guys showed off their hard cocks by letting them throb and bob free of hands.  Their spermacous eruptions were pulsating, one after another: Scene 1 Roberto Ameida; Scene 2 Sylvio Braga; Scene 3 Luciano Perreira; Scene 4 Fabricio Silveira; Scene 5 Armando Santos; and Scene 6; Danilo Cardoso.

While the total film package of locations and poses may have appeared a little-too perfect for some tastes, the rough unbridled broncho spirit of the men shined through.  Not only did gay men rent the tape, many of them opted for the significant investment (oftentimes over $80) to buy a VHS copy: It was that good.  In addition to Champs, Kristen followed-up with Carnival in Rio which was hard-core and equally a big hit.
What made these first videos so popular remains easy to see, even when viewing them today.  It helps to keep it in the context that they were produced these films during a time when cheap-quality San Fernando videos had flooded both straight and gay erotica markets, and when many of the male models often looked like they were 'doing' the films between 'doing' street johns and 'scoring' their next fix.  Contrast this against Bjorn's non-California-looking, naturally athletic men sporting their bronze bodies for moolah and not giving a damn who looked or not.  One of the gentleman appearing in Tropical Heatwave was Luciano Perreira (also known as Brad Foreman) who would go on to star in Carnival in Rio.  Here are some photos of Luciano which were both teasers (hidden crotch) and explicit, probably for marketing campaigns aimed at different audiences.  According to his publicity bio, his nationality is from Brazil, Height: 5'10, Weight: 160 lbs, Penis: 7" and married after modeling.  He even made the August 1988 cover of Honcho!

Poolside Pup

Artist Ian Hanks was born in 1974 and grew up in a rural area of the Netherlands.   "I think growing up in a small village during the 80´s had its share in my illustrating career. No internet back then. Best a shy gay boy could get were some sunmilk ads and comic books with semi-nude men. What did gay men do? What did it look like? As there was no visual material available, certainly not as easily and in abundance as after the worldwide web clicked in I had to create what I wanted to look at. I was pretty young when I realized naked men fascinated me. Didn´t take long to get out the pencils and draw more, more and even more!"

His art is appreciated around the globe these days.  Among his most-popular fantasies are series involving horny twenty-somethings pairing up with even hornier fifty-somethings.  His legal twinks are smart enough to know a good thing when it comes along, and refreshingly these silver haired foxes are full of self-confidence and pick up lines that work to nail them.  Ask any poolside drink server in Vegas or LA and they will tell you that this sort of 'male bonding' between age groups happens all the time, with confident grey haired gents usually calling all the shotsIn this great vintage Poolside Pup fantasy, a blonde twink asks for a cigarette and well...

August 1993

If you were in Germany in August 1993, you could pick up this issue and find wonderful Dennis showing off his man-goods.  Just like fast food companies can offer somewhat modified versions of their menus to people in different parts of the world, magazines can do the same.

Vintage Italian Porn Magazine: Angelo

Angelo and his younger brother Marco made a big splash in gay smut a few decades ago.  It's still easy to see why bronze Angelo was so popular in the United States adult book shops back then.  For $6 dollars this magazine gave its readers nice black and white (plus a couple of color) photos of hot Italian swagger and natural uncut male penis.  Please stay tuned tomorrow for part two, including photos of Angelo showing off all of his beautiful male body.
